The 2012 campaign is going to be long road. So far the press is turning over every rock they can find to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney. There’s nothing wrong with that. That’s what the press is supposed to do. Let’s just say the press is a little more zealous about going after Romney than they ever have been with Obama. I mean… Obama just cracks me up. His agent pushed a bio for Obama that claimed the President was born in Kenya. A one-time mistake I get, but it was on the agency’s website until 2007. Am I supposed to believe Barack Obama didn’t notice the error for over 15 years?
The crazy people will believe this masks some sinister birth certificate conspiracy, but that’s not the point. Barack Obama is a fraud. He never corrected the error because for a time the “idea” of being born in Kenya helped his “story.” Liberals love to create myths about themselves in order to speak about topics with more authority. Who knows more about race relations than a real African American? A man born in Kenya! Mark Steyn always says it better than me…
If your first book is an exploration of racial identity and has the working title “Journeys in Black and White,” being born in Hawaii doesn’t really help. It’s entirely irrelevant to the twin pillars of contemporary black grievance — American slavery and European imperialism. To 99.99 percent of people, Hawaii is a luxury-vacation destination and nothing else. Whereas Kenya puts you at the heart of what, in an otherwise notably orderly decolonization process by the British, was a bitter and violent struggle against the white man’s rule. Cool! The composite chicks dig it, and the literary agents.
Exactly! The same thing is going on with Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. Warren has claimed for years to have Cherokee blood in her veins. The list of ridiculous claims made by Warren increases every day. Have these people any shame? It all goes back to “fake but accurate” and the “ends justify the means,” the twin pillars of liberalism.
The liberal cause for social justice means whatever these people do is justified. When CBS manufactured evidence against Bush in the 2004 election it really didn’t matter because they believed so strongly it was true. If the Washington Post believes that a massacre in Utah that happened over 150 years ago is relevant in the 2012 election shouldn’t they send someone to Kenya and find out what Obama’s ancestors were doing in the 1800s? I’ll save them some time: it’s irrelevant. However, the fact Obama created a story to further his literary career says a lot about the man in the Oval Office.
